I just came home from high school( being 18 that year). It was an afternoon in our country, and when I arrived home I found out Dad had the TV turned on and there were broadcast kinda weird pictures! I said: “Whats up?” He said nothing except for”Shush, I am watching!” I saw the Twin Towers in flames and I thought it was not real at first, but later my heart stopped. “Oh no, it is real”! Tears started to flow immediately. I remember it so clear even now! Such a feeling of compassion for the relatives of the victims dwelled deep down in my heart!
9/11 changed the world so much.. It was the beginning of the long lasting war! War against terror.
